Top 15 Athletes Who Have Wet Themselves During Competition

It’s hard to imagine professional athletes as anything other than calm and collected individuals who feel completely at ease once competition begins. Looks can be deceiving, however, and behind every steely thousand-yard stare there is often a bladder that is just quivering with anxiety and threatening to empty at any given moment. It doesn’t help matters much that every athlete is constantly being told to hydrate over and over again, causing even the staunchest of bladders to feel overloaded to the point of bursting in an instant.

While it may seem like the unlikeliest of events to occur on the field of athletic competition, a staggering number of athletes have been forced to relieve themselves during play. Some chalk it up to nerves, others to overhydration, but it is a common occurrence nonetheless. So it shouldn’t be too surprising that former Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Tony Siragusa is now representing Depend for Men given the familiarity the Goose ostensibly had with men urinating themselves while on the field.

Of course, Siragusa’s pitch for the Depend brand is actually quite honorable, as the products the company sells are often geared toward men who experience leakage due to prostate issues caused by cancer. During Siragusa’s playing career, the grown men urinating themselves on the football field were not doing so because of a medical issue, but instead were emptying their bladders as a matter of convenience. As one of the athletes on this list has said in NFL Unplugged, "You're drenched in sweat anyway. What does it matter? By the time warm-ups are over, you're overhydrating and you're drenched. It's clear. It's not urine. What's the big deal?" The 15 athletes on this list also agreed with the sentiment that it is indeed no big deal when it comes to urinating during competition.

Crowder, a former NFL linebacker who played six seasons with the Miami Dolphins, pissed himself every single game of his career without fail and was quite proud with himself for having done so. Crowder, speaking to NFL Films, happily revealed his weekly Sunday ritual: “I peed down my leg during any game. I never went to the bathroom in a toilet. Six years straight I peed down my leg. I would just be in the huddle and just pee. You wouldn’t even notice. Nobody in the stands would know unless you look down like, ‘That’s not water man!'”
